Your place for community & resources to find or create work you love
We are so glad you're here and ready to take the next step! We created 48days.net as a place for community. For people to encourage each other and help each other in finding or creating work that is meaningful.
But frankly, we've outgrown it, so we're moving to provide you new resources.
48Days.net will be closing as it is today on November 30, 2017. Until then current members can click the button below to access groups and resources.
If you're new to 48days.net, connect here for a close up look at our thriving 48 Days Eagles Community and to get weekly free resources and motivation as you find and create work you love.
I really liked using DollarPhoto, however now that their business is closed, looking for a new place to purchase pictures from for my blog and presentations. Any suggestions on who you have used and like?
Hi Jen -
Here are some I currently use and have used in the past:
www.unsplash.com (All pic's are FREE but I can't always find one that fits.)
stocksnap.io - Same as Unsplash. All pic's are free.
Flickr - you just have to change the license filter to what you need it for (Creative Commons, allow modifications, no known license restrictions, etc.)
Hope those help!
I go to Upwork.com and post a job for x-number of images with a theme, and get the original, large file size, and the size reduced for web use. You can pay a flat fee or per hours. I got 30 images, 10 for each of three themes, from an American source for $75. Could get them cheaper from overseas, but I wanted the American cultural feel. I find working with images takes too much time.
Canva would be another resource. I use them a ton to make social media posts and simple graphics. I've never bought an image, but they advertise over 1M images to choose from, and they're all $1/each to use.
I like Fotolia.com for paid photos, and Pixabay for freebies. Pixabay has a lot of high-quality, free images, but like a lot of free image sites, you'll see lots of people using the same images.
Fotolia uses credits, so you have to buy a package. But they run specials often. The photos start at about $1.50 and range depending on the size of the photo needed.
I recently signed up for StockUnlimited. The price was right and there's quite a few photos to choose from.
Will, Charles, Joseph, and Nicole...THANK YOU for the responses back!!! These were helpful!!!
Why does no one mention Canva? that's my favorite.
